The biggest struggle when it comes to natural, textured hair is the styling. Regular products aren’t as moisture-intensive they need to be. Good products are extremely expensive. And let’s not even get started on the salons! Sure, we can go to our typical black salons, but sometimes we just want that higher end service with the high quality results, which can be extremely hard to find.
The Good Hair Salon has heard our prayers to the hair gods and is gracing us with exactly that—and at an affordable price! Created by Anthea Kelsick and Folake Oguntebi, two friends who graduated from Stanford, the goal of the salon is to make a difference in the hair industry and change how people think about hair.
“We believe good hair is healthy hair. Whether your hair is kinky, curly, coily, wavy; whether it’s relaxed, natural or somewhere in between, if it’s healthy, it’s good!” says Team Good Hair.
Good Hair is innovative, amongst other things. It’s good for your hair, schedule, wallet and the world. The salon specializes in textured hair; you can get your hair done in less than 90 minutes, the pricing is totally transparent and it is run in a socially responsible way.
Their process is extremely simple:
- You meet with a hair therapist who will talk about your hair and give you tips and product recommendations in addition to talking about what style you want.
- They wash your hair based on the personal recommendation for your hair type.
- For an additional cost, you can get a cool curl/shine treatment and/or a trim for split ends.
- They style your hair. You can choose between different styles such as “Good to Go” which is a wash-and-go treatment or “Crazy Sexy Good” which is a voluptuous wavy treatment—and these are just a few examples of many.
- They talk in detail about what they did so that you can keep your style going at home.

They’ve already raised more than they needed, so hopefully Good Hair becomes a huge success and we have our fingers crossed that we will be seeing a salon closer to our own hometowns.
